Get paid to write online

If you’ve always wanted to be a writer, what better time to start than during lockdown? While a lot of online writing jobs don’t pay, there are still quite a few websites where you can make money by creating high quality, relevant content. 

You can get started by looking at:

  • Listverse: a listicle website that will pay $100 per accepted article.
  • Longreads: a long-form content site that pays competitive rates. The website doesn’t specify the amount paid but other websites and blogs have stated rates of $500-$1,500.
  • Back2college: a site aimed at older students will pay $55+ per accepted article. 
  • All Pet Voices: a pet website that pays $75 per accepted article.
  • iWorkWell: a website for HR professionals and SMEs that pays $200 per accepted article. 
  • Loaded Landcapes: a photography website that pays $20-150 per accepted article. 
  • Income Diary: a website focussed on making money online that pays $200-$500 per accepted article. 
  • A Fine Parent: a parenting website that pays $75 per accepted article. 

All of these sites only pay for accepted articles, so make sure that you review their criteria and read through the websites for an idea of their existing content and style before you start. Some websites also prefer to receive pitches before the main article. 

While a lot of freelance writers have regular clients, writing for some select websites allows you to build up a portfolio, create a niche, and work up to higher-paying and more reliable income, if that’s something that you want to pursue.
